UPDATE 4:14 PM
The Twitter account https://twitter.com/nm8smyh, which sent the original message, has been suspended. The authenticity of the account as belonging to an ISIS member has not been verified.

A reported member of the militant group Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), which recently dubbed itself simply as The Islamic State, has declared that they will destroy the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, which is Islam’s most holy site.

APA quoted alleged ISIS member Abu Turab Al Mugaddasi based on reports from Turkish media, who said on Twitter:

If Allah wills, we will kill those who worship stones in Mecca and destroy the Kaaba. People go to Mecca to touch the stones, not for Allah.

ISIS reportedly is planning to take over the city of Arar in Saudi Arabia, which is very close to the Iraq border. It is a fifteen-hour drive away from Mecca, the site of the Hajj pilgrimage which all observant Muslims are expected to do at least once.

If indeed the statement is from an ISIS member, it’s a shocking one even for them, considering that ISIS has been attempting to increase recruitment from Muslims worldwide by declaring the restoration of an Islamic Caliphate.

According to John L. Esposito, Professor of Religion and International Affairs and of Islamic Studies at Georgetown University, “In terms of legitimacy- unless you’re someone who’s ready to join a terrorist group at this point, for the vast majority of Muslims there is no legitimacy with this group.” This most recent threat reinforces Esposito’s point, particularly as it comes during the holy month of Ramadan.

This piece has been updated to reflect the lack of authentication behind the reported tweet.

[Editor’s Note: This does not necessarily entail the beliefs, thoughts, or theories of the local Act chapters or the National Act office…they are my beliefs, thoughts and/or theories. This could be a fulfillment of Bible prophecy…with Mystery Babylon being destroyed…you see, Saint Malachy, the Archbishop of Armagh, Ireland, that gave the Pope Prophesies in 1139. In the ending of his prophesies (that are 100% fulfilled so far) he foresaw that “The city of the seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people.” Many people think that the end time Mystery Babylon that falls (Rev. 18:1-3) is Rome, because Rome has been pushed off on everyone that it is the only “holy city” on seven hills…however…if you look at Islam, they have two holy cities that are on seven hills…Istanbul, Turkey, and Mecca Saudi Arabia…and according to the Revelation 17:3-11, Mecca could very well be the Mystery Babylon…and ISIS could be the ones looking at, in a round about way, fulfilling the prophecy of Mystery Babylon being destroyed, without realizing they are fulfilling it…]
